The Company is currently in a turn-around face focusing on cost management, operational efficiency and productivity of human resources. The company is seeking to increase the frequency of its flights to Liberia and Vietnam expanding to its portfolio of destinations. The turn around strategy also included a plane disposal initiative that the company expected to boost cost savings going forward. This disposal intiative is expected to rationalise excess capacity through sub-leases and outright sales.
